The Stargazers Inn was a breath of fresh mountain air compared to the rest of your typical Victorian B&Bs! Doreen, the Innkeeper, has decorated her B&B with fantastic planetary photographs and astronomy books and videos. She offers a wealth of knowledge, not only of astronomy, but of the local Big Bear history and things to do in the area. The gourmet breakfasts were OUT OF THIS WORLD, and we were so full that we didn't even need lunch both days we skied. We very much appreciated the special touches, including dietary considerations and organic/local product options. The Star Party conducted by Neil St. John was amazing and worth the nominal cost, especially with Neil's attention to detail while describing the planets. We gazed through the B&B's telescope at the craters of the moon and the rings around Saturn, shaking our heads in disbelief! Our room, Perseus, was beautifully decorated and very clean with modern and romantic amenities. Finally, the chlorine-free pool and in-suite candlelit jacuzzi tubs were welcome touches after an active mountain day! Our only regret was that we didn't book our trip for a longer stay!!!
